Blak Rino owner Sam Oden says his store caters to the male and female punk, goth, hip-hop and skater crowds. His vintage T-shirts, designer handbags, and new and used threads are decidedly youth-oriented.

It's been here for 20 years, and Northeast Cyclery is one of the oldest bicycle shops in the city. "You wouldn't know it when you look at it from the outside, but it's also one of the largest," says owner Mike Viga. There are bikes for folks of every age and size, and the store also rents bikes, snowboards and skis. There are a few vintage wheels rolling around the store as well.

Grant-Ginsberg is highly attentive to her customers and makes sure all their questions are answered.
